If they can learn to say Tchaikovsky and Michelangelo and Dostoyevsky, they can learn to say Uzoamaka.

It is better to be unhappy and know the worst, than to be happy in a fool’s paradise.

I want to pace down open roads in the middle of the day. During the time the sun is still so high in the sky so I know I am not alone. I like to know that there is more out there than just me and you. Even the moon looks lonely sometimes when it’s surrounded by stars.
I want to love someone and be loved in return but I only seem to find one or the other. One day I want to find both of them hidden between the sunrise and the sunset. 
And I hope it’s eternal.
